I've been taking full advantage of the mountain bike these last two weeks, checking out trails and riding on the beach. I like riding with the wider tires on the icy roads and trails, which are definitely safer than my road bike! Until you're riding in an area you've never been before... following some footprints in fresh snow... and realize you've biked onto a sheet of ice flowing along the river. OMG. Heartstopping moment there. Pleeeeaaassse don't break through the ice.
Ya. I was lucky.
Forest River Conservation Area is my new playground. I just need to watch where I'm going.
